Superstitions

Recommended Posts

According to my wife it has been a superstition for hundreds of years that you cannot use a dishwasher or washing machine on New Years Day.

You live and learn.

Wasn’t New Year’s Day a day off for the pan badger and clothes washer in the household in olden days 😉 

Posted solely in jest, in case someone grumbles.

We have a hi-tech dishwasher. It has taken the combined intellect of the finest engineering brains in Germany to create a very quiet dishwasher that uses hardly any water,  has an innovative drying function and is connected to our router for remote operation. Why then,  does my wife think she knows better than the designers and manufacturers how to load it? 😡 🤬

So is my owner right that you cannot work on New Years Day?

But does she know better than you how to load it? My guess, from personal marital experience, is "Yes!"

Away from dishwashers:

Never have done. Even after 30 years in the NHS.
